you're taking a live look at allen university in columbia where bill clinton will make an appearance. he's going to speak at a rally called "fighting for us" at six. our chad mills and will whitson are there live. texas senator ted cruz predicts a strong showing, and a high priority for his performance in south carolina's republican primary. cruz spoke with wis news 10's charles molineaux and said his victory in the iowa caucus can be repeated in the palmetto state. the latest polls show donald trump with a strong lead among south carolina republicans, but cruz says iowa puts new energy into his campaign. cruz, and his wife heidi, gave rousing speeches to a packed rally in greenville last night. organizers say the popularity of the event exploded after cruz's monday
5:27 pm
the iowa caucuses. cruz declares he's seeing a broad base of support materialize across the country and in south carolina. 00:33:06 "there are differences, but i think there's a lot more that unites us than divides us. and, in particular, iowa and south carolina have long had a history and commonality. you look at iowa and south carolina, you've got military veterans. you got a gun owners. you've got strong people of faith who love god and who are fed up with what barack obama and washington are doing. i think the state of iowa and south carolina have often done together, that iowa is often a strong foreshadowing of what's going to happen in south carolina because we share common values. and i think something else that was really powerful that we saw evangelicals and libertarians and reagan democrats all coming together. now those are wide philosophical differences. it's not easy to bring together that many philosophical differences, but that's what you got to do to win

it's what you got to do to win the general, to beat hillary clinton or bernie sanders." cruz also says he expects more attacks from donald trump as the campaign moves toward the new hampshire and south carolina primaries. but he says he will not spond in kind. we'll have more of my interview with ted cruz on wis news 10. you can always find complete coverage on wistv.com - including why jeb bush is saying south carolina is the key to his presidential campaign. a years-long battle between the city of columbia and the owner of an adult business appears to be ending. the store known as taboo---is closing its doors. news ten's jack kuenzie has been following the story since taboo opened more than four years ago. he's here with the latest. judi---taboo opened a few weeks before christmas 2011 and almost immediately came under fire from city leaders. they said an adult business in that location,
5:29 pm
devine---would be a magnet for crime and a drag on surrounding commercial and residential areas. city council action and litigation quickly followed. about two years ago, a suit filed by owner jeff white went before a federal judge---with his attorney accusing the city of "shifting, arbitrary" tactics against a business selling legal products protected by the first amendment. the city responded in part by providing white with a list of 45 other sites where he could relocate. none of them, said taboo--either suitable or available. then last month, federal judge terry wooten ruled against taboo. and last friday, a city attorney notified the business it was violating zoning rules and had until february 5th to close down. we've never had any police reports on this place. we've never had any issues, robberies, you any of that. secondary effects that they keep talking about. we've never been shown where we've created any kind of secondary effects. we kind of feel we've been open since
5:30 pm
of the city didn't want us here we'd been out of business by want us here. the manager says taboo might have pursued a fourth circuit appeal of the lower court ruling---but that could take time. meanwhile, the city could have fined owner white $500 dollars a day and ordered him to jail for 30 days for each day the store remained in business. it does not appear at this point there are any plans to seek a location outside the city limits. jack kuenzie wis news ten. concerns over the spread of the zika virus continue. a confirmed case in texas was spread through sexual transmission. and there are more concerns over possible birth defects. meaghan norman has more on the zika virus. dawndy, right now there are no confirmed cases of the zika virus in south carolina. officials with dhec tell me they have sent four samples to the cdc for testing.
5:31 pm
others are pending. but georgia health officials just reported its first case of the zika virus today of someone who recently traveled to colombia. the virus has been confirmed in more than two dozen countries, mostly in south american and the caribbean. the cdc has issued a travel advisory to dozens of those countries. the virus is primarily spread through mosquitos. but yesterday, texas had its first confirmed case spread through sexual contact with someone who had traveled to venezuela. dr. samantha morton an obgyn at carolina women's physicians at lexington medical center says the virus can be spread through different bodily fluids but there have also been concerns of possible birth defects related to the virus. dr. morton says the concerns are valid but no cases have been documented. "this is relatively new so there haven't been any cases yet of any birth defects being associated with the zika virus being transmitted through sexual contact this is obviously something the cdc is looking extensively at including
5:32 pm
departments in the countries that are having more problems with the infection rate but it is something we need to look out for now as other data comes out." according to the cdc -- the most common symptoms of the virus are fever, joint pain, rash, red eyes. for those who get sick, the illness is usually mild. and the treatment is rest, drink fluids and take a fever-reducing medication. we'll continue following any developments with this virus. in the studio, meaghan norman wis news 10. big hug to each of these precious girls of bethel- hanberry elementary in richland school district two. i taught a class this morning on etiquette and these young ladies so impressed me with their desire to learn.
